Remixed With Love By Joey Negro Vol 3 Pt 1
See all of this week’s releases here
Dave Lee (aka Joey Negro’s) tireless pursuit of the original master tapes of some of the most iconic disco tracks ever created has resulted in another fine volume of classics that have been given a fresh twist by the master remixer. He approaches each record with reverence seeking to bring out elements that further enhance what are established vintage gems through his pursuit of the composite parts – often a pursuit that takes years to achieve. ‘Bourgie, Bourgie’ by Gladys Knight & The Pips, ‘Looking Up To You’ by Michael Wycoff, ‘Doin’ It’ by Gwen McCrae, ‘Shante’ by Mass Production, ‘I Am Somebody’ by Glenn Jones, ‘Going Back To My Roots’ by Odyssey, ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ by Patrice Rushen and as great take on Deniece Williams’ ‘Free’ are among the many highlights on this solid selection.
